Fighting for you in Coquitlam-Burke Mountain
As a long-time resident, former city councillor and Member of Parliament for Coquitlam, Fin knows and understands our community. He has seen the devastating impact COVID-19 has had on his neighbours and local businesses.
With his extensive political and community experience, Fin is ready to help David Eby and the BC NDP ensure a stable recovery and stronger BC for everyone.
During his time in Ottawa, Fin introduced bills to protect West Coast waters. He founded the All Party Oceans Caucus, a group of MPs and Senators that put politics aside to promote ocean health.
Prior to being elected in 2002, Fin was a well-known community and environmental advocate completing 14 environmental marathon swims, including twice swimming the 1,375 km length of the Fraser River. Fin was honoured by the Squamish Nation for his stewardship work, and given the name, Iyim Yewyews, which means Orca or “strong swimmer in the animal world."
Fin is the founder of the Rivershed Society of BC and lives in Coquitlam with his wife Lynda.
